Good call, JJB! :thumbsup:
I finished Compton's book tonight. WOW!
Held my interested for many reasons:
--I'm interested in WWII history.
--Interested to hear his side of Band of Brothers.
--LOVE his views on what America should be.
--As JJB says: "amazing what all he did after he left the service". Amen to that!
I was especially interested in his law enforcement career (for obvious reasons)
--the Sirhan Sirhan case was especially fascinating to see from an insider's view.
--....and he reminded me of my dad!
Compton could have written a book about:
-Time in the service
-Time as a cop
-Time as a lawyer
-Time as a judge
And he was all of those things, pretty crazy!
FINALLY finished Planet of Twilight.....hopefully I will never see the name Barbara Hambly again.....she almost turned me off from Star Wars for good.
Onto The Crystal Star. :thumbsup:
DQ, why are you doing that to yourself? You have so much to live for!
Finished The Lovely Bones - great, sad book. Too bad word is the movie sucks.
Started Up In The Air.
currently reading Death Troopers. just started so I'm only about 7 chapters in. interested to see how this plays out.
has anyone joined that Star Wars Galaxies offer in the back of the book for the continuing storyline. was curious if it was worth signing up for ?
I have to say. I'm really enjoying Death Troopers. the book is really good. I'm about 100 pages away from finishing it and looking forward to finding ouot how it ends. might get the subscription for the Star Wars Galaxies series and see how the entire story-arc plays out
